On Sunday, November 13, 2016, at approximately 8:30 a.m., deputies from the Fontana Sheriff’s Station responded to a residence in Fontana following the report of a domestic disturbance. The victim reported his estranged wife (Alma Briseno) broke “everything” and was armed with an unknown weapon. The victim stated suspect Briseno arrived at her residence with their 11-year-old son. The victim observed Briseno was angry and he would not open the door.
Briseno began vandalizing the victim’s vehicle by scratching the paint and puncturing three tires. Briseno also broke a front window and had their son climb through to unlock the front door.

Deputies arrived and found the Brisenos struggling over the knife. The Brisenos were ordered to drop the knife, which they did immediately. Both were detained without incident.
